THE “DEAR FRIEND” STORY

Dear Friend was designed by owners Jeffrey Van Horne and Matthew Boyle of The Clever Barkeep. Longtime Dartmouthians, Van Horne & Boyle wanted to create something special for the community of Downtown,
a place where you can meet a friend and have a conversation over a nice glass of wine, a cold beer or a refreshing cocktail.
